Us Too? Understanding sexual harassment in the legal profession - pathways, power, and intersections

Project summary

We are recruiting women who work or have worked in the legal industry to take part in a research study about your experiences or perceptions of sexual harassment.

The research aims to examine women’s perceptions and/or experiences of sexual harassment in the legal profession, it’s interpretation, and its impacts. The research is concerned with exploring the role that sexual harassment plays in women’s pathways into/out of, and throughout the legal profession.

Who can join?

  • Women who are currently working in the legal industry;
  • Women who have previously worked in the legal industry (including work experience or student placement);
  • Women working towards a law degree or qualification.

If you are interested, or unsure about your eligibility to participate, get in touch – all inquiries are welcome.


What does participation in this research involve?

You will be asked to participate in a one-off interview. This will involve a discussion about your perceptions and/or experiences of sexual harassment in the legal profession, how you interpret or understand sexual harassment, how it has impacted your pathway through the legal profession, or how you perceive this would impact other women’s pathways throughout the legal profession.

The interview will last for approximately 1.5 hours.

You will be offered a reimbursement of a $50 e-gift voucher. If you are unable to complete the whole interview for whatever reason, you are still entitled to this reimbursement.
